Dr. Akuamoah's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Akuamoah "Dr. Latrice Akuamoah, M.D., M.P.H. is a board certified anesthesiologist and a specialist in chronic pain management. Originally from Chicago, Dr. Akuamoah initially moved to New York State for her Bachelor of Science in Molecular Genetics at the University of Rochester. Upon graduation, she attended Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans where she attained her Medical Degree and her Masters of Public Health. Dr. Akuamoah completed her internship at Maryland General Hospital in Baltimore and returned to New York to undertake her residency in Anesthesiology at The Mount Sinai Hospital. She just completed a fellowship in pain management at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Pennsylvania, before returning to New York to join the Spine and Pain Institute of New York. As a result of her public health background, Dr. Akuamoah has developed an “educate, treat, and prevent” approach to pain management. Firstly, she recognizes the burden that chronic pain has on a large and growing percentage of the population; many of whom suffer on a day-to-day basis unaware of new and targeted treatment options. Dr. Akuamoah takes the time to carefully listen to all of her patients so that she can better understand their concerns and educate them on their respective conditions. This ensures that the patient is at the center of the solution. Second, she understands the unique impact that pain has on each individual’s life. For this reason, she strives to develop individualized treatment plans that take into account her patients’ diverse needs and lifestyles. Finally, Dr. Akuamoah is committed to improving patients’ quality of life and, whenever possible, preventing the development or worsening of chronic pain. Dr. Akuamoah performs a complete evaluation of each patient. She uses an evidence-based multimodal approach to pain management often recommending behavioral therapy, physical therapy, medications, and cutting edge minimally invasive procedures, when necessary. Dr. Akuamoah has expertise in the treatment of painful conditions of the back and neck, including sciatica, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, arthritis, and continued pain after spine surgery. She also specializes in treating chronic joint pain, headaches, and neuropathic pain. In her spare time, she enjoys playing soccer, watching the latest popular TV show, and spending time with her family. Dr. Akuamoah is excited to return to New York City where she frequently enjoys a slice of pizza, though she still prefers Chicago-style deep dish."
